Positive Reviews

Harry of AICN gives his thoughts:
"The timbre of his voice in the title character is simply wonderful [...] he is simply majestic and human. Amazing, super and courageous."
Time chimes in with a VERY spoilery review:
"The best Hollywood movies always knew how to sneak a beguiling subtext into a crowd-pleasing story. Superman Returns is in that grand tradition. That's why it's beyond Super. It's superb."
Variety's take on the film:
"One can praise newcomer Routh very highly indeed simply by saying that he carries this giant film with apparent effortlessness. Thesp possesses a winning, appealing personality that nicely complements his rangy, black-haired, blue-eyed good looks."
Hollywood Reporter likes it:
"Like Reeve, he is just right physically, looking at times like the old comic book drawings of Superman. There is honesty in his acting where the emotions that play across Superman/Clark Kent's face and body come from deep within."
Newsweek praises the film as well:
"Newcomer Routh may or may not be a real actor, but he effortlessly lays claim to the iconic role, just as Reeve did [...] Singer cleverly doles out his hero in small portions, so that we're left, like all those awestruck admirers in Metropolis, wanting more glimpses of him than we get."
